hi, i've tried everything i can think of, but 2.6.3 still gives me:

<font><font size="3"> my text </font></font>

when i copy "my text" from a homepage in FF3 and paste it into FCKeditor 2.6.3 in another FF3 tab. I've tried to disable pastefromword and looked throught the source but can't find why it's doing this. i want plain text. :(

it was even more annoying to read in the forums that "no more font tags as standard from 2.5".. all i get is bloody font tags.

Did you try "Paste as plain text"?

Do you have <font><font size="3"> my text </font></font> in your homepage source?

If I manually click paste as text it works, but I want to be able to use CTRL+V. No there's no font tags in the source of the html document I copied the text from.

FCKConfig.ForcePasteAsPlainText = true ;

Doesn't seem to be doing anything, the paste as word button is still visible and functioning, and CTRL+V still adds fotn tags to the text I try to paste.

And btw, I get the same thing on your site's demo of FCK editor (newest version). It doesn't generate font tags from all websites, only tried this one(no font tags) and the one I tried copying text from to begin with:

Setting FCKConfig.ForcePasteAsPlainText = true; doesn't hide PasteFromWord button and it is not a bug.

You have FONT tag in your source (

<td valign="bottom" colspan="3" width="910"><font size="5">FHD_Kassa</font></td>

but when ForcePasteAsPlainText is set to true you should see a "Paste as plain text" panel using CTRL+V.

If you set ForcePasteAsPlainText to true, you will see the paste dialog in FF3 on CTRL-V or by using the Paste button. If you don't want the Paste from Word, just remove it from the toolbar.

FCKeditor does not "produce" font tags anymore by using its tools. It will not control it if you are taking content from outside the editor. If you had <font> in the source, the editor will just respect it.
